Lack of hand positions are my only issue. I wouldn't want to do a serious twisty downhill descent where I couldn't get down in the drops for braking leverage. Same thing for heading into the wind. I rarely ride on the tops of the bars unless I'm doing a long climb, but you can't do that either. But overall I think they work great.
